Robin Aleman

A native of New York, Robin Aleman’s smooth vocals have been engaging audiences for many years. She has been performing steadily in the tri-state area, filling houses wherever she plays with her original arrangements.

While attending Fordham University, she took elective classes in music theory and musical theater. Not long after graduating, Robin began studying voice with Phil Campanella. Although she studied classical music initially, it wasn’t long before she realized that jazz was her true calling and began studying that genre exclusively with acclaimed jazz artists, among them Dena DeRose, Tierney Sutton, Barry Harris and Nancy Marano.

Robin’s debut CD was released in 2005 to critical acclaim. The CD, entitled Tonight, features some of the best young talent in the scene today: David Epstein on piano, Bob Sabin on bass and Peter Retzlaff on drums. Also playing is guitarist Pete Smith, featured on 2 of the 14 tracks. The CD is getting airplay in the US and Toronto, Canada.

Her sophomore effort, entitled “In Your Eyes”, will be released Fall, 2010. She teams once again with pianist David Epstein and bassist Bob Sabin. Rounding out the band is Brian Adler on drums and Nathan Childers who plays on three of the 14 tracks. “In Your Eyes” showcases a mix of classic and rarely heard standards by a wide variety of songwriters - Duke Ellington, Richard Rodgers, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and Chick Corea, to name a few.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
